The Richard J. Randall Student Center is situated adjacent to the Bennett D. Katz Library and main classroom buildings and provides students, faculty, and staff with a very special meeting and gathering place. It houses the Bookstore, several lounges and conference rooms, the Moose Tracks Café, offices for the Honors Program, Student Government, student clubs and organizations, Student Life, Enrollment Services, ID Card Services, Registrar, Student Financial Services, and Dean of Students. Many special activities take place at the Randall Student Center such as musical performances, holiday festivities, lectures, discussions, and displays. It also houses faculty and staff offices, as well as smart classrooms.



This office provides many services such as registration, veteran's assistance, immunization information, graduation, and houses official academic records. Transcripts are ordered through this office, but are not furnished to individuals, other institutions, or prospective employers without the written consent of the student concerned. Transcripts are sent free of charge. Requests for confidentiality of directory information are directed here. Any changes in status (including address, name, course load, etc.) must be reported. Contact: Registrar's Office in Augusta, Admissions and Student Enrollment Services in Bangor.



All Augusta degree candidates are encouraged to meet with an advisor prior to registration for courses. All Bangor degree candidates must meet with an advisor prior to registration for courses. Any student who wishes to register for more than 18 credit hours in a semester must have the approval of the college dean. At Bangor, all non-degree students register with the Advising Center or the Office of Admissions and Student Enrollment Services. In Augusta, non-degree students should contact the Advising Center, Enrollment Services Center, or the Registrar’s Office. Contact: college office, academic advisor, Advising Center, Enrollment Services Center or Registrar’s Office in Augusta; Advising Center or Admissions and Student Enrollment Services in Bangor, or center student services coordinator.


SAFETY AND SECURITY (See Personal Safety Escort Service)



Scholarship forms are available through the Student Financial Services Office. Scholarships are normally awarded each spring for the following fall. Most scholarships have a spring deadline. The scholarship application form will indicate specific requirements and procedures to follow. There are also financial need scholarships that are awarded as part of the financial aid package. For a listing of scholarships, please see the UMA catalog. Contact Student Financial Services in Augusta for information on scholarships.



UMA complies with all laws that define the rights of individuals with disabilities and makes reasonable efforts to accommodate specific, appropriately documented academic needs. Current documentation by a qualified health care professional may be required if the disability is not readily apparent. Documentation should describe the nature, longevity, and severity of symptoms as well as the functional limitations that the disability causes in the learning process. Students with disabilities may initiate requests for accommodation through the learning support and counseling services staff or student services representative at their campus or center. To ensure the timely availability of accommodations, students must request services well in advance of the start of each semester.  See accessibility statement for list of contacts.



(See Equal Opportunity)



Please be aware that some of UMA’s video courses (recorded via ITV, Panopto, etc.) may be made available for viewing by other students who are enrolled in the same course, but not in the same video section. Students who want to know if this practice applies to their video section should check the class notes (click on “View Details”) in the online Class Search and course guide, or check the course syllabus and course BlackBoard site.


STUDENT ACCOUNTS (Now called Student Financial Services)

Student Financial Services is responsible for student billing, processing payments, billing of third party sponsorship contracts, payment plans, disbursement of all financial aid refunds, tuition refunds, and applying waivers against student account balances. Appeals for changes in residency status should be submitted to Sheri Stevens, Executive Director of Administrative Services (see Residence Classification Policy). Please contact Student Financial Services in Augusta if you have questions about your account; for residency questions, please contact Administrative Services in Augusta.  Billing policies, procedures, a schedule of tuition and fees, and other useful information is available.



Student Associations are available at all University College Centers.  Both the region’s Student Association (SA) and the University of Maine at Augusta General Assembly (UMA GA) may be active at your outreach center or site.  Local Student Associations assure an appropriate balance of activities for all fee-paying students and provide a forum for discussion of local or University College policy issues affecting the quality of the student’s educational experience.  The UMA GA represents UMA students taking courses at a distance in discussions of governance issues.  Representatives are chosen from this group to represent the entire distant student body at UMA General Assembly meetings.  Contact: center student services coordinator.



All UMA students have access to a series of social, educational, and cultural activities. Such activities are planned in cooperation with the Student Government Association. Musical entertainment, lectures, demonstrations, luncheons, games, and off-campus trips provide a well-balanced program. Students are encouraged to participate in or lead an activity of their choice. Students interested in developing activities or clubs are encouraged to contact the director of student life in Augusta or your campus Student Government Association. Also, check with the Office of Student Life in Augusta or Bangor for tickets to area performances.



The SGA is the officially recognized governance group, which represents all UMA students. The SGA allocates the revenues collected from the student activity fee; these fees are used to support activities of a cultural, social, educational, and recreational nature. The Augusta, Bangor, and Distance Education Student Associations represent the student body collectively, each with delegates on the UMA SGA General Assembly. General elections are held in the fall for the Student Representatives; officers are elected in the spring. Contact: director of student life in Augusta/Bangor, your campus SGA or SA, or your center student services coordinator.
